Healthy Foods for Denver Kids Programs
Montbello Organizing Committee is in collaboration with Health Food for Denver Kids to provide access and information around health foods and its impact on children, families, and their daily lives. The goal is to empower families to make decisions around their health and utilizing food as a tool to manage their health. In partnership with the Consumption Literacy Project, Children’s Farm in Action, School Garden Partners, Home Gardeners and local food pantries, we aim to create a Montbello Food Network.
